Pixar’s Forgetful Fish Is Lost In The Deep Blue In New Posters For Finding Dory

9 February 2016 1:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact Andrew Stanton’s long-awaited animated sequel is arriving a full 13 years after its beloved predecessor, only six months have lapsed for aquatic life under the sea, and today’s series of posters for Finding Dory prove that Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful explorer is still as playful as ever.

Keeping up her habit of swimming (and swimming and swimming), the images are as much a showcase of Pixar’s vibrant rendition of the deep blue as they are a game of hide-and-seek.

Returning along DeGeneres for the adventure are Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence – replacing Alexander Gould from the 2003 original – and it’s only when Dory catches sight of manta rays migrating home while attending a school trip with Nemo that she sparks a burning desire to find her wayward parents. It’s a desire she didn’t realise she had in the first place, of course, and Finding Dory »

Have You Seen Her? - Four Gorgeous Posters for Pixar's 'Finding Dory'

9 February 2016 10:32 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Can you help us find Dory? Where did she go this time? Disney-Pixar have unveiled a gorgeous set of four teaser posters for Finding Dory, the upcoming sequel to the beloved animated adventure Finding Nemo. This animated sequel sees Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, getting lost on a search for her parents, and Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, joining with Nemo to head back out and save her. We're still waiting to see more footage and get a better sense of the story aside from the original details (see paragraph below) but otherwise, I'm very excited for this just because I love all the different fish and animals found in the ocean. These are stunningly simple posters. I love the last one (with the sea anemone) the most. Take a look below. Here's the four teaser posters for Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory, debuted together in a set via IMPAwards: You can »

Dory hides with jellyfish in the adorable new poster for Finding Dory

9 February 2016 8:18 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Dory was everyone's favourite part of Disney's Finding Nemo, and on June 17th, we are going to learn so much more about the confused blue tang fish.

In this new poster for Finding Dory, Dory can be seen hiding behind a sea of jellyfish. While we would never go anywhere near those jellies, Dory likely sees them as companions, because she's seriously the friendliest fish around.

While Nemo was physically lost in the Great Barrier Reef, Dory is already lost in a different way. As she suffers short term memory loss, she has a hard time remembering where she came from and is on a quest reunite with her family. We're so excited to go on this self-discovering journey with Dory. 

Ellen DeGeneres is back providing Dory's voice, along with Albert Brooks reprising his role as Marlon. Joining the cast are Idris ElbaMichael SheenTy BurrellEd O'NeillKaitlin Olson »

Super Bowl TV Spot For The Secret Life Of Pets Introduces The Gang

8 February 2016 8:06 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Late last night, cinephiles found themselves awash with new trailers and TV spots to pour over in anticipation of 2016’s hottest new releases. From the lavish tentpole blockbusters in the vein of Independence Day: Resurgence to Universal’s retooled and rebooted Bourne franchise, we saw it all. But perhaps the one snippet to steal our hearts (outside of Bill Murray’s wonderful turn as Baloo in The Jungle Book trailer) was the latest tease for Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming animation, The Secret Life of Pets.

From temperamental furry felines to wide-eyed and adventurous canines, last night’s spot was all about introducing the film’s gang of furry companions, and you go up close and personal with each via the gallery below.

In terms of the story driving the on-screen shenanigans, The Secret Life of Pets will largely revolve around Max’s (Louis C.K.) plight to find a way back »

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks or Phyllis Brooks or Louise Brooks, »

'Taxi Driver': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Martin Scorsese's Classic

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"You talkin' to me?"

It's the 40th anniversary of "Taxi Driver" (released on February 8, 1976), the movie that gave Robert De Niro his most famous line, put Martin Scorsese on the map, proved that the pre-teen Jodie Foster was an Oscar-worthy thespian, and (most notoriously) was cited by John Hinckley as an inspiration for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

In honor of the film's anniversary, here are 25 things you need to know about how Travis Bickle came to be.

1. The script, by Paul Schrader (pictured, left), was semi-autobiographical. After a divorce and a break-up with a girlfriend, he wrote the movie while living in his car, feeling suicidal, obsessing about guns and pornography, and having spoken to no one for weeks. As he recalled in 2013, "Taxi Driver" was "an exorcism through art," and it worked.

2. Martin Scorsese saw the script as early as 1972, but didn't yet have the clout to make it, »

Soderbergh Ends Retirement For Tatum Movie 'Lucky Logan'

4 February 2016 7:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well, that didn't take long...

Steven Soderbergh, best known for his Ocean's Eleven films, Traffic, and Sex, Lies, & Videotape, went into semi-retirement three years ago. It wasn't a total farewell to Hollywood. Soderbergh claimed he was done directing feature films, specifically. He'd still be around to produce, be a cinematographer, or possibly direct for television, but- for all intents and purposes- his time sitting in the director's chair for a major motion picture was over. 

Yeah, about that..

He's back.

According to Variety, Soderbergh read the script for the upcoming Channing Tatum vehicle Lucky Logan and simply fell in love with it. Between loving the script, and having a great working relationship with Tatum, he's reportedly ready to come out of retirement so that he can direct this film. The pair has previously worked together as actor and director for HaywireSide Effects, and Magic Mike

Michael Sheen Reportedly Cast In Pixar Sequel Finding Dory

29 January 2016 12:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Upon appearing on Doug Benson’s comedy podcast Doug Loves Movies, Michael Sheen may have let the catfish out of the bag by revealing that he’ll feature in Pixar’s upcoming sequel, Finding Dory.

Due to hit theatres in July, the Welsh thesp didn’t disclose which character – or should we say aquatic animal – he’ll be voicing in Andrew Stanton’s follow-up, with his simple quote from the podcast being: “Finding Nemo 2 should be coming out at some point… which I’m in.”

No word yet from Disney and/or Pixar to confirm Sheen’s place among the cast, though now that his involvement is all but out in the open, an official announcement should be imminent. Mind you, given that he referred to Stanton’s sequel as Finding Nemo 2, don’t hold your breath for it being a major part.

Either way, that’ll have »
